The Maryland-based biotech company Novavax reported Monday that its experimental Covid-19 vaccine is safe and 100 percent effective against moderate to severe disease. The company has already completed a Phase 3 trial in the U.K., but the U.S. trial results are required to apply for emergency use authorization in this country. The Novavax vaccine is given in two doses, 21 days apart. The Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines all work by providing genetic instructions for the body to build the coronavirus's spike protein, which the immune system learns to recognize and fight. The Novavax vaccine can be stored in standard refrigerator temperatures.

Despite the study results, Novavax said it needs much of that time to ensure that its manufacturing processes meet regulatory standards. Novavax started its late-stage, or Phase 3, trial of the Covid-19 vaccine in late December. Novavax said that the vaccine was 93.2% effective combined against the variants of concern and variants of interest in the study. One challenge conducting the study, Novavax said, was the availability of authorized vaccines. In all, about 5,000 people dropped out of the study, Novavax said, meaning the Covid-19 cases that were used to determine efficacy occurred among the remaining 25,000 study subjects, Dr. Glenn said.

REUTERS/Athit PerawongmethaA series of coronavirus outbreaks in Thai factories is raising concerns that the export sector could be hit hard, threatening to further undermine an economy as it struggles to recover from the pandemic's crippling blow to the crucial tourism industry. “If it continues the damage will increase so factories have to be fully vaccinated,” he said. Instant noodle maker, Thai President Foods Pcl (TFMAMA.BK) closed a factory that produces rice vermicelli and rice noodle.

A government official defended the bubble and seal policy, saying it allows businesses to continue operations and limits the outbreak.

This city’s meteoric growth has made it even more difficult for people living below the poverty line. According to a new report from Mayor John Cooper’s Affordable Housing Task Force, nearly half of all Nashville renters pay more for housing than the maximum percentage of income recommended by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The city has already implemented plans to triple investment in affordable housing, but it will be a very long time before affordable housing is within reach for all Nashvillians. And she has been writing about the experience, even as the tumor has taken away her ability to read. She shares unvarnished accounts of the indignities of cancer, and cancer treatment, but invariably her essays are also deeply felt and beautifully rendered meditations on the gifts — yes, the gifts — of struggle.

A woman holds a small bottle labeled with a "Coronavirus COVID-19 Vaccine" sticker and a medical syringe in front of displayed Novavax logo in this illustration taken, October 30, 2020. Additionally, the two-dose vaccine was found to be 100% effective in preventing moderate and severe disease and 93% effective against some variants, Novavax said. The new data comes as federal officials say the U.S. has more than enough doses of Covid vaccines to finish vaccinating the entire American population. It's possible the U.S. could end up donating doses of the Novavax vaccine. Novavax said Monday it remains on track to reach manufacturing capacity of 100 million doses per month by the end of the third quarter and 150 million doses per month by the fourth quarter of 2021.

Fast fashion is moving into activist crosshairs. Retailers like Adidas and ASOS could be sitting ducks for activists’ intent on a greener future. A shift to online shopping has meant fewer items returning to stores to be recycled. Retailers are also collecting used clothes in stores and using fewer chemicals in their production processes. - The RSA analysed a sample of 10,000 items added to websites from PrettyLittleThing, Missguided, ASOS and Boohoo found some stores only contained 1% recycled fabric.

In the 29,960-person trial, the vaccine demonstrated an overall efficacy of 90.4 percent, on par with the vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, and higher than the one-shot vaccine from Johnson & Johnson. The Novavax vaccine showed an efficacy of 100 percent at preventing moderate or severe disease. Despite these impressive results, the vaccine’s future in the United States is uncertain and it might be needed more in other countries. Novavax says it may not seek emergency authorization from the Food and Drug Administration until the end of September. The company’s chief executive, Stanley Erck, acknowledged in an interview that Novavax would probably win its first authorization elsewhere.

Novavax said its coronavirus vaccine was 90% effective at preventing COVID-19. The biotech company Novavax said on Monday that its coronavirus vaccine succeeded in a final-stage clinical trial, demonstrating 90% efficacy at preventing COVID-19. It remains to be seen how the Novavax vaccine will be used in the US immunization campaign. Among the most vulnerable population — including older people and those with frequent exposure to the virus — Novavax's vaccine was 91% effective. Despite the uncertainty surrounding its use in the US, Novavax's COVID-19 vaccine program has been a remarkable and unlikely success story.

MOSCOW — Moscow's mayor on Saturday ordered a week off for some workplaces and imposed restrictions on many businesses to fight coronavirus infections that have more than doubled in the past week. The national coronavirus task force reported 6,701 new confirmed cases in Moscow, compared with 2,936 on June 6. Although Russia was the first country to deploy a coronavirus vaccine, its use has been relatively low; many Russians are reluctant to get vaccinated. President Vladimir Putin on Saturday said 18 million Russians have received the vaccine — about 12% of the population. For the entire pandemic period, the task force has reported nearly 5.2 million infections in the country of about 146 million people, and 126,000 deaths.

In March 2020, a vegan food company gave workers an ultimatum: work through the pandemic or quit. On Friday, those who chose to keep working at No Evil Foods lost their jobs in a round of layoffs. No Evil Foods, which is backed by the same investors as Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, received backlash last year over its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. No Evil Foods uses socialist-inspired branding, such as one fake meat product called "Comrade Cluck." No Evil Foods lost about 13% of its workforce last year after the ultimatum was given.

A Baltimore factory that rendered useless 75 million doses of a coronavirus vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson failed for weeks to seal off a preparation area for vaccine ingredients and allowed production waste to be hauled through the area, the Food and Drug Administration said in a memorandum analyzing the plant’s operations. The memo, posted on the agency’s website late Friday, offered the most extensive explanation to date of why regulators believe that tens of millions of doses of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine produced at that factory must be discarded. advised Johnson & Johnson on Friday that it should throw out the equivalent of 60 million doses. That brought to 75 million the total number of doses that cannot be used because of concerns about contamination at a southeastern Baltimore plant, operated by Emergent BioSolutions, Johnson & Johnson’s subcontractor and a longtime government contractor. The vaccine-making factory has been shut for the past two months while regulators determine the cause of contamination that ruined many doses, whether it is safe to reopen the facility, and what to do with the equivalent of at least 170 million doses of vaccine that Emergent produced for Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca, another vaccine developer.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020 provided a $300 weekly federal supplement on top of regular state unemployment benefits. Larry Hogan said in a statement June 1 as his state became the 25th to end the federal benefits.
